Fernandito’s bar at the design week

Fratelli Branca Distillerie is the historic Italian company that produces the world wide known herbal digestive “Fernet”. In South America and especially in Argentina one of the most appreciated and refreshing drinks  is the “Fernando” a mix of Fernet and cola stirred with ice and an orange slice. In 2013 I had the opportunity to design a temporary bar to offer the “Fernandito” during the design week in the courtyard of the industrial chic building “Galvanotecnica Bugatti”, in Zona Tortona. I designed a wooden bar counter recalling an old oceanic shipping box that had been delivered by a cargo ship from Argentina. The brand logos were printed on transparent polycarbonate panels fixed on the front and sides of the counter. A set of six “fourfivesix” pentagonal poufs were customised printing the “Eagle” historic Branca logo on leather.
